Adding More Columns in eCart Object?

Thread began 4/08/2009 1:36 pm by Art | Last modified 7/16/2010 10:42 am by Art | 3675 views | 16 replies


Thanks for your reply! I tried what you suggested, but missed something somewhere. Here's what I did:

1) I opened Products_Detail.php page

2) I added a column (ProductCategoryID) to the cart.

3) Added a Calculation: PartsShipping=abs([ProductCategoryID] == 2) * [Quantity]

4) Created a rule: FlatRateParts (see below)

5) Created a new recordset (rsCatID):
SELECT products.ProductCategoryID
FROM products

6) From the Bindings tab, I drug ProductCategoryID (from rsCatID) onto my Products_Detail.php page within the addFields div:

<div id="addFields" <?php echo(($row_WADAProducts["NumLeft"] > 0 || $row_WADAProducts["ProductUnlimited"] != 0)?'':'style="display:none"'); ?> >
<input type="hidden" name="WA_Store_Cart_1_ID_Add" id="WA_Store_Cart_1_ID_Add" value="<?php echo $row_WADAProducts["ProductID"]; ?>" />
<?php echo $row_rsCatID['ProductCategoryID']; ?>
<h2 id="ProductPrice">$<?php echo number_format($row_WADAProducts["ProductPrice"], 2); ?></h2>
<input type="image" src="Images/btn_addtocart.png" border="0" value="Add to Cart" name="WA_Store_Cart_1_ATC" align="absmiddle" />
<input type="text" name="WA_Store_Cart_1_Quantity_Add" value="1" size="2" align="absmiddle" />

7) OPened the add to cart server behavior and added a value to ProductCategoryID:

<?php echo $row_rsCatID['ProductCategoryID']; ?>

On my WA_Store_Cart_PHP.php page:

$this->Shipping[] = new WA_eCart_Rule(urldecode("FlatRateParts"), true, "WAEC_WA_Store_Cart_FlatRateParts");
$this->Shipping[] = new WA_eCart_Rule(urldecode("UPS%20Shipping"), true, "WAEC_WA_Store_Cart_UPSShipping");
//end node

On my WA_Store_Cart_PHP.php page the rule looks like this:

//eCart Rule
function WAEC_WA_Store_Cart_FlatRateParts() {
$totalShipping = 0;
if (true && (($this->ConditionalTotal("Quantity", "PartsShipping", "2") > 0) && (( (ceil($this->TotalColumn("PartsShipping")/4) * 9.95) )))) {
$totalShipping += 9.95;//Result
return WA_eCart_FormatNumber($totalShipping, $this->ForceDecimalsC, $this->DecimalPlacesC);
//eCart Rule
//eCart Rule
function WAEC_WA_Store_Cart_UPSShipping() {
$totalShipping = 0;
if (true && (("UPS"=="UPS")&&(isset($_SESSION["WA_Store_Cart_UPS_Quote"]))&&(floatval($_SESSION["WA_Store_Cart_UPS_Quote"]) != 0))) {
$totalShipping += floatval($_SESSION["WA_Store_Cart_UPS_Quote"]) + 0;//Result
return WA_eCart_FormatNumber($totalShipping, $this->ForceDecimalsC, $this->DecimalPlacesC);
//eCart Rule
//end node

On my WA_Store_Cart_PHP.php page the calcs look like this:

$this->TotalWeight = $this->Weight * $this->Quantity;//w
$this->TotalPrice = $this->Price * $this->Quantity;//c
$this->FullDetails = $this->Quantity . ' ' . $this->Name . ' (' . $this->ID . ')';//t
$this->PartsShipping = abs($this->ProductCategoryID == 2) * $this->Quantity;//t

I uploaded updated files for testing. On Products_Detail.php, I added three ProductCategoryID=2 products to the cart and checked out. Standard UPS rates applied, not my rules. Also, category 1 appears on the page instead of Cat 2?
